Budding artists aged 5 to 18 years are invited to create a portrait for the Young Archie 2019 Competition. It's the junior version of Australia’s most famous portrait competition, The Archibald Prize.
The Young Archie is the first of the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery's family-focused activities for the much anticipated 2019 Archibald Prize regional tour, coming to the Gallery 22 January to 6 March, 2021.
Portraits for the Young Archie should be created of someone who is known to the artist and who plays a special role in their life. Great prizes are on offer in each age category plus the chance to have their portrait exhibited alongside the famous finalists from the 2019 Archibald Prize!
